It seems rather apt that with social media struggling to achieve a balance between hatred and compassion a rather lovely ‘rattle bag’ is being published.

52 LOVES is a beautiful collection of quirky and extremely well-written stories and beautiful poetry of every persuasion.   Authors and Poets who have contributed include, Tina Rath [UK] of Cake and Quill fame, TSW Sharman [USA], Parveen Sethi, Wing-Ho Lin—[Hong Kong / UK], Katy Maxwell—UK, Liam Hogan—UK, Alex Lindquist—USA, David T. K. Wong—China / Malaysia, Ndaba Sibanda—Zimbabwe / Angola, Brenda Anderson—Australia.  The charismatic and talented, Yolanda Christian contributed and edited the project.

And I have a couple of poems inside.

It is available here 52LOVES for the UK and here 52LOVES (USA) for America but is available on all the amazon international sites.

‘To have a story or a poem for each week of the year strikes me as a very cool idea. This international collection featuring writers from all over the world had such an interesting ring to its title. And I must say that my curiosity has been whetted by what I have read so far. Tina Rath’s Carnival and Nalini Priyadarshni’s Your Name and Blooms of Dawn are short, sensuous poems that I enjoyed immensely. Meet Roderick by David Bentley is an altogether a different flavor. So many different hues of love in one book….a fantastic read for the Valentine month. I don’t think I will wait till December to finish it’.   Vikas Singh
